THE SALINA JOURNAL Money FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1996 A7 T ARCHER DANIELS MIDLAND Two ADM executives step down Chairman's son and head of corn processing division out in wake of price-fixing scandal By KURT EICHENWALD " The New York Times DECATUR, 111. — Two senior executives with Archer Daniels Midland Co. — including Michael D. Andrea's, son of the company's powerful chairman — have stepped down from their jobs in light of a continuing federal investigation of their possible in- .volvement in price-fixing at the company, a .'board member said Thursday. Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, who serves on the company's board, said Andreas, the vice chairman and formerly the heir-apparent, had been granted a leave of absence. The other executive, Terrance Wilson, the longtime head of its corn .processing division, has retired, he said. "They no longer work here," Mulroney said Thursday in comments to reporters af- ter the company's annual meeting here, where the company narrowly beat back a revolt among shareholders. In a statement released later, Archer Daniels said that Wilson had retired for health reasons. The statement added that the two men remain available to perform services for the company. Lawyers for Andreas and Wilson did not return telephone calls. The departures come just days after Archer Daniels pleaded guilty to charges that it fixed prices of two agricultural products and its agreement to cooperate in the continuing investigation of the executives, who were responsible for much of the daily operation of the grain giant. People with knowledge of the situation have said that a committee of the company's board recently recommended that the two men be offered leaves. Officials have disputed that account, and continued to deny it Thursday. The company's guilty plea was the centerpiece of Thursday's meeting, in which company chairman Dwayne 0. Andreas apologized for the crimes that had been committed and ac- cepted ultimate responsibility for them. Also, Mulroney said that, earlier this year, Andreas offered not to stand for re-election to the board but that other directors asked him to remain. Those signs of contrition came in the face of deep dismay on the part of institutional shareholders, who came extremely close to imposing new bylaws on Archer Daniels that were opposed by the company's board. The most important measure, which would require that the board be composed of a majority of strictly defined independent directors, received 42 percent of the vote. In the world of corporate governance, such a strong showing for a shareholder proposal was highly unusual; the change of a single institution's vote could have swung the results the other way. "To my knowledge, this has got to be unprecedented in terms of percentages," said William O. Bell 3d, chief of management policy for the Florida State Board of Administration, a co-sponsor of the measure. "If I was on the board, I would listen very closely to the message the shareholders are sending." T TECHNOLOGY Apple unveils two new computers NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE .;K«m« Dlv.

Apple said it would begin selling an entry-level 160 megahertz Performa computer priced at $1,499, its first computer in that price range.

The television, radio and print campaign will have the tagline "Apples Bring Learning Home" and show parents teaching children. The new products and price cuts come on the heels of the No. 3 personal computer maker's surprise return to profitability. The company yesterday reported a fiscal fourth-quarter profit after three straight quarterly losses. While some investors breathed a sigh of relief and saw the profit as the first sign of a turnaround, others said they wanted the company to back up its results with new products. Until this new program, Apple hadn't unveiled competitively priced computers for the home market, with its machines priced about $300 more than comparable models from rivals. California suspends Chrysler's license By The Associated Press SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In an unprecedented squeeze on lemon- law violations, California decided Thursday to bar Chrysler Corp. from delivering cars and trucks to the state for 45 days. Chrysler said it would appeal, which could delay the action for years. "We're delighted," said Clarence Ditlow, executive director of the Detroit-based Center for Auto Safety. "It is the first time a state has taken an auto company off the streets for violating state law." The state Department of Motor Vehicles' also wants to prohibit Chrysler from reselling lemons it buys back from unhappy customers and would put the company on probation, both for three years.
